Turkey Mad Max style with stuffing?

Made a compromise with the wife, turkey on the egg, but she has to have stuffing inside. I was looking to do a 10 lb. or so. Wondering how to incorporate the stuffing. Will the stuffing cook all the way assuming 15 min ish per lb. Has anyone attempted this? Any comments or suggestions or receipes on stuffing would be appreciated.

    I prefer to do the stuffing outside the bird as it has a BAD habit of absorbing tooo much smoke flavor.  The only eggception I make is when doing turducken and then I use no smoke.

  • This is what I do and it works well

    First make a dark turkey stock (roasted backs and necks, wings and mirepoix)

    Then fry sausage onions, celery, garlic and peppers 
    image 
    Herbs, pick 'em. I use thyme, rosemary, sage and parsley (didn't want to sound like Art Garfunkle by saying it the other way) 
    image 
    Chop the herbs and more garlic 
    image 
    Punch holes in an aluminum pan 
    image 
    Make some foil balls and place in another pan 
    image 
    Put some stock in the pan with the foil balls 
    image 
    Mix sausage, dry bread, veg and herbs in, moisten with some stock and clarified butter 
    image 
    Place a couple of turkey wings and necks on top 
    image 

    Put the stuffing pan with the holes on the one with the stock and cover both pans with foil and bake for about three hours at 350* 
    Remove foil and cook till browned on top
